During the past decade, a million veterans have returned from deployment overseas. Many of them face physical and emotional challenges that make transitioning back to civilian life particularly daunting.

Established in 2015, the Clemente Veterans’ Initiative (CVI) invites students to renew their sense of purpose through deep engagement with the humanities. Exploring questions of war, civic duty, family, and sacrifice, CVI offers veterans a chance to place their personal experience into a broader perspective, one that helps them connect their military experience with their civilian lives.
